it was really cute anyway, have a great week everybody, i'll see you back here tomorrow. actually next weekend. what am i talking about? >> >> ladies and gentlemen, governor, mike huckabee. [applaus [applause] >> hello everyone, welcome. welcome to huckabefoe from the fox news studios in new york city. it has been nine years ago this weekend that two planes hijacked by terrorists changed this city's sky line and america's spirit forever. we remember the victims of september 11th, not only those in new york, but also those killed at the pentagon and
8:01 pm
aboard united flight 93. we reflect on the effect that day still has on all of us, wherever in america we live. joining us tonight, former new york city mayor rudy guiliani who came to be known as america's mayor. [applause] >> for his leadership in the the d weeks follong tragedy. we also have academy award winning actor and political activist jon voight, who ares how he thinks america has changed in the past nine years. [applause] >> plus, country music star randy travis is here with us, he's got a music cal tribute to the victims of 9/11. now, none of us are going to forgets where we were and what we were doing on that day. and how what we were doing just didn't matter much. i was attending a conference in the southern governor's association in lexington, kentucky and along with other governors was wsked away to an underground command center
8:02 pm
in the kentucky state police headquarters while we tried to manage our state's response from a distance, along with the fog and frantic and often unreliable information we were dealing with. as much a i remember the urgency of government business that day, i will never forget calling and being comforted to hear each of my children's voices, just to know they we all right. but for over 3000 families, av they would not have the voice of ercomfort. they were the ones wse loved ones went innocently to work or brded an airplane that day, but wld never come home again. to them, we dedicate this special edition of huckabee tonight. [applause] we have neil cavuto who joins us from liberty state park across the river from ground zero. neil, thank you for joining me, i know you've put in a long day, but i want to talk about first of all, just some
8:03 pm
personal reflections. for you, this was not just a news event. as you began to hear what happened there at the world trade center, these were people you knew. you knew many of the individuals twho lost their lives that day. tell me whatou started feeling as those names came forward to youn september 11 11th. >> well, you know y, like you, governor, you can't get over the magnitude of what's happened and at the tienme what was happenin and since i've been covering wall street for so many years and had time covering wall street so many years, i immediately went on the phone to see if my budies and sources were okay. i put in a call to david alter of auld er management. he later died and tom cantor hat cantor fitzgerald and he later died and there were so many funerals and events and eulogies i had to be a part of
8:04 pm
because the magnitude of the losses were so sweeping and you know, governor you and i were briefing chatting before. we do talk about the loss of financial capital and obviously, the deliberate target of the wall street area as a central part of that terrorist attack, but we lost ala great deal of human capital then, some of the best and brightest minds on wall street. and in losing them, it's something you don't easily recover from and those were some of the finest minds that i'd had. in fact, in the case of mr. alger he had been on the show just a few days prior to talking to me about how he had confidence inhe american economy to come back and was looking forward to tax cuts getting us back and i rememr we got into a discussion about whether investors were coming back in the market and days later he would be dead. so many stories like that, governor, i don't want to bring you or your audience down, but it is a reminder of what was lost that day, some incredible people. >> mike: neil, i think we need to be sobered by it, reminded
8:05 pm
that there was an extraordinary amount of human pain that day. you experienced it as friends of yours perished in what was a senseless act of cold blooded murder at the hands of terrorists, but also, want to reflect upon something that gives us all hope, there was a sense in which people thought this country would never ever recover, that our economy, that our marketplace, would never recover. as you look back nine years, tell me fro your perspective, you've beenovering this field for 30 years, what is to you the most remarkable thing you see looking at it in perspective. >> how often the official media gets it wrong. s i think the covered stories of e time that spoke of aon coming depression, others said that there would be virtual virtually-- the death ofhe economy as we knew it. american capitalism was o the way down. american the beacon of hope bes on the waydo. it was supposed to be an awful christmas shopping season. in a matter of months it
8:06 pm
wasn't. it was supposed to be a preview to a depression as i said, it wasn't. it was supposed to lead to a multi-year freeze in investing, it didn't. it was supposed to question america's leadership role as economic bellwether, it didn't. i only say these things, governor to say how much the consensus crowd got it wrong and continues to get it wrong i think if we learned anything from that day it's that we, have an amazing ability to come back under the most trying of circumstances and that was-- >> (applause) >> neil, i've always told people i think you are the smartest, hardest working anduy one of the nicest guys in the business and once again, i want to say my heart felt thanks for the audience today. >> i totally agree with you (laughter) >> thank you, buddy. two days after the twin towers collapsed in manhattan, hope
8:07 pm
and symbol appeared out of the wreckage. ♪ >> the horrific images of septembe11edth, 2001 are etched in all of our minds. but for the brave men and women who helped in the recovery efforts, the images reach far beyond the television screen, just before dawn on september 13th, 20, volunteer rescue worker, having just lifted three bodies from the rubble, discovered a 20 foot high cross section of steel i-beams in the shape of a cross. he dropped to his knees in sears. it was a seen god hadn'teft us, hehrsaid. throughout the recovery ed ffort at ground zero, the cross became a source of hope and faith for thousands of workers dealing with the unbearable conditions. they began to write on the cross the names of the dead and held weekly masses at its
8:08 pm
base. 2001, the th, cross was elevated on a pedestal above the rubble and blessed byatr jordan a franciscan priest for st. peters that served for rescue workers. >> this is a cross for all people not just for a christians, but for all people who gather here to pray in god's love. >> the cross was movedrom the world trade center's site in october of 2006 in order for construction to continue. it now resides at st. peter's church just four blocks from ground zero. joining us in the audience is frank, the first man who discovered the cross at that gave hope and comfort to so many. >> thank, thanks for joining us today. >> i want to ask you when you saw that cross, what was the emotion that went through you enit. >> well, it brought me to my knees and a firefighter who was with me. d he just worked all night longg looking for search and
8:09 pm
recovery operation that the firefighters were through. it brought me comfort. it let me know that through all of thi journal i and t bodies and parts we wer picking up and putting in body bags, that it gave us a symbol of hope and helped us to carry on and i felt that was important to humanity. >> mike: it was a remarkable find, frank, thank you very much for being here today. [applause] >> also, with us is richard sheerer, the director of the mayor's office of emergency management. and he was the one who coordinated the response effort at ground zero. richard, it's great having you here today, thank you very much. [applause] >> when you heard about the cross at ground zero, you were taken by it just as frank was. >> yeah, and when you look at jordan, who is an amazing t.priest, had it right. it's a symbol for a religions, that's what it was, and we all know that the cross
8:10 pm
is a symbol of christianity, but i'm not a christian. >> mike: you're jewish. >> i'm jewish. >> mike: yet, it touched you. >> it did and i saw how it touched everyone, like frank and all the firefighters, all the construction workers and each and every day, they found a littlesolace from it and those first few days, tre was-- it was very, very difcult and that, finding that cross and then eventually moving it on to west street made a big difference and it gave people something to t hink that god didn't abandon us. i mean, i myself said to rabbi from the fire department how does god do something like this? and his answer to me was very simple, god didn't do this, men did this. and that across really meant so much to many people and i hope with frank, that it goes in the memorial as other religious icons have all over the world in secular museums, that's where it belongs.
8:11 pm
>> richard you had looked at some of the ugliest scenes that america had ever seen on its own soil. scenes of the aftermath of the twin towers falling, that cross became a reminder, as you were diggi through rubble looking for what was left of people and their lives and their work, that there was hope. and when people went to that cross as workers, what happened to them personally? >> you would see people cry, people that, that-- tough hardened construction workers, like franks, and firefighters ap police officers, and they would break down. when i think about it, i still get emotional. it had a meaning far beyond the two pieces of steel beam that it was in reality. it really brought comfort to a lot of people. >> i want to say thank you very much, richard, for bei a here and for sharing the power of that cross and thank you, also, for the magnificent job
8:12 pm
that you did in coordinating there at the site, nine years ago today, we all owe you a debt of graduate dude for the leadership that you and the other leaders of new york gave to the city and to theest of america. thank you very much. >> thank you governor. mike: i'm going to say my special thanks today to michael cains, a friend of mine in texas who spent more than a year of his own lifein assisting rescue workers at ground zero. he first told me about the ground zero cross and what i meant and michael, to you and marge my health felt tnks and best weshs. michael is the guy there in the middle. earn a free night! two separate stays at comfort inn or any of these choice hotels can earn you a free nht -- only when you book at

8:18 pm
we don't want to do anything that creates more grief, more, more pain for them. and the issue of the mosque at ground zero has been a particular source of pain. >> well, yes, of course. you know, i have many concerns at this time. u know, about our country and one of my concerns is about our mayor bloomberg here. i saw him on the-- you know, on different shows this morning and he's a puzzle to me. and he's a-- you know, he's certainly been a good mayor and he has expressed his deep, heart felt compassion for the families of 3000 innocent victims of this st muslim extremist onslaught and yet, at the same breath, he okays this mosque, whion i feel is a desecration against this heroic burial ground.
8:19 pm
now, i can only feel that there must be some personal agendahat we have yet to see and i'm going to be waiting for it. but i'm concerned. >> mike: there seems to be almost a feeling of we've got to accommodate the people who disagree with us most strongly and i think all of us recognize, all musm people are not terrorists, but the people who flew the airplanes into those buildings that day and who flew the plane into the pentagon, they were islamic extremists and they j jihadists and the presence of that mosque is too painful for too many people, jon. >> i believe so. i believe, i'm very strong veabout this, i believe that this is a way to show the muslim world,ve i believe that this is a designed act to show

8:24 pm
[applaus [applause] >> listen, we have-- it's our own homeland. we have had millions and millions of immigrants come into this country under the banner of tience and honor and they have, you know, gon through all the steps, the necessary steps t become citizens. and now our president allows murderers and criminals to have a safe haven under the banner of acceptance of the illegals. this is-- this is a real problem and of what is the purpose of it? i assume to get votes for his continuance. it's a deep concern of mine. >> the thoughtfe that the ue federal government would sue a state because the state is trying to enforce a law that is a federal law that the feds won't enforce, it's hard for me to put all that together, jon. i don't know if i can quite figure out how the government
8:25 pm
says we are going to hold you responsible and sue you because you're enforcing a law that we don't have the courage and will to enforce, somehow that doesn't fit for ime? >> i think that you're-- i think you're such a wise fellow.

[applaus [applause] >> mr. mayor, great to have youer hoo, thank you. >> right here?
8:31 pm
>> it's hard for me to believe that it's been nine years since everyone in america watched you take command of a situation that no one could have er read a textbook and been prepared for, but you did it with an extordinary sense of, i ink, leadership that america looked to. the key thing was getting communication established, command and control that has to happen in a crisis and a lot of people don't understand the intercassies. iant you to walk u through, mr. mayor, the first thing after a horrible incident, something like a disaster, a tornado, you've got to communicate to the people who are responsible and you've got to have command and control, tell us what happens. >> that's why immediately i went there. g the first indication i got i was at the peninsula hotel on 55th and i was told it was a twinngine plane hit the
8:32 pm
tower. terrorists--ow the stn't >> i didn't know-- >> i walked out of the peninsula hotel and looked up at the sky, a beautiful day like it was dad. i said it can't be an accident, it's a too beautiful of a day i thought maybe it was some kind of crazy pers, because ty said it was a twin engine plane. i was about a mile away the second plane hit and at the time i knew it was a terrorist attack and when i got there we decided to have two command posts. one for the fire department, and one for the police department. because the fire department needed to be on the street in order to see the flames and the fire, and observe the rescue effort, and that's the way they fight fires. the police department, i wanted to have them help the fire department, but their main concern was to protect the rest of the city. i didn't want them so focused on that because remember, there were two attacks, we didn't know if there wouldn't be ten or 12. mike: sure. >> when we called the white house we were tseld i think seven or eight planes were unaccounted for so we knew
8:33 pm
about the two attacks in new york and at that point we knew about the attack on the pentagon. we didn't know about the plane that went down in pennsylvani we thought maybe there will be two or three more attacks and we better protect the empire state building, the statue of liberty, some of the churches and synagogues and we had a bigong list of possible terrorist targets. about 120 of them. >> mike: and those already on a list thatou had you had. >> we had a list compiled from arresting terrorists and taking material from them and basically, for exale, we had arrested a gup of terrorists in brooklyn who wanted to blow up the subway. if you recall they had plans for the new york city subways, for the tunnels and for several of the bridges and they had explosives. so, a lot of that material had been collected by the fbi and shared with the police department, so we had this joint terrorism task force and that's how we prepared our list of what they would probably attack. and believe it or not, the world trade center was not the number one target. the number one target was the
8:34 pm
stocks exchge, the one that probably came up the most as a target of the terrorists when we would arrest them. >> mike: when all of this took place, you had to assume a unique position of command and i used that term very deliberately because i think a lot of people don't understand that there are so many different agencies, you have not just the police and fire, but the port authority, you have medical emergency people, then you have private businesses, there are literally dozens, if not hundreds of entities who want to do their job and somebody has to stay in charge and say, here is wherehe decisions come. you never flinched, that was something you took command of and everyone knew rudy guiliani was this charge. was tre any moment in your life that prepared you for septr 11th because surely there was something deep down inside, it wasn't like you said let me go get a book, i'm going to read-- >> the funny thing was i was wring a book a wbout
8:35 pm
leadership whe it happened and i had just-- i had finished just about the first draft of it and i guess, the morning that that happened, if you had asked me have you been through every conceivable emergency, i would glve very arranogtly said i've been through every single emergency. i've been through airplean crashes, building collapses, blackouts, hostage situations, so, yeah, i had been in charge of othert emergencies that at that time seemed to me tbe massive and so-- but my first reaction to this when i got there, this is way beyond anything thaert we've ever handled before and i had a slight feeling well, we're not prepared for this, but then i started to remember how much all of my people had been ow many of these emergencies you deal with in new york city just about every month and i realized that sure, they're not going to be perfectly prepared, but they'll know how to handle this, they're going t know how to deal with something, even if this is beyond us, at least we've had so muchll
8:36 pm
experience with all of these able toies they'll be function well. >> there's one great surprise that i have. i want your reaction to it. when this happened, nine years ago today, i think a lotf us said, well, this is going to continue to happen. are you surprised that we have not had. >> yes. >> mike: more mass terrorist activities and why have we >> first of all, yes, i am surprised and not only am i surprised, i was told this was going to happen again. i mean, i was being warned there will be fur ther attacks. right then, and in the immediate aftermath of it. i think of course, we did have the anthrax attack a month later which i guess the fbiluas concluded wasn't terrorist inspired, but which we just w really don't know. >> mike: we didn't know. i remember. >> at the time it happened. >> mike: scared everybody. we shut down an arena in arkansas and turned out it was powdered sugar from a funnel cake, but we closed the whole arena, everyone thought it was thanrax. >> well, for about three weeks, i think, there was some degree of panic over it and then another attack.
8:37 pm
i think it hasn't happened because of what president bush did. i know that isn't very popular, or politically protect. he went to a conference and put america on offense, and basic analsy we had been on defense, they took a wrong signal. the signal we won't responsiblli didn't do with the cole, what hpened earlierhen americans sailors were killed and sure, we responded, responded in afghanistan, in iraq, whatever else you thinkf it and i think we put them on defense. and i think they never expected it. i think that bin laden in a million years never expected that response out of america, because he had been used to a very defensive, almost apologetic america which unfortunately we're becoming again, which really concerns me. >> mi: it should concern all of us. >> yeah. >> mike: well, mayor, one thing about leadership, no one ever doubts er. that is that you offered it to this city and to this country in a time it was needed.
